    I guess they are about the same size and shape....but they live in different locations. And the red river really orange/red. You will not see the bright red/orange in RSA. At least that's what I think, when I see bushpig pictures from RSA, they are gray to a light brown in color.

    Hey teenhunter enysse is right about the different locations. I had the same question for my PH Rusty I had read that they were the same animal and I ask Rusty if that was true and he said no they are two different species of pig and that the Red River Hog is the most beautiful one in Africa with their brighter colors.
    Enjoy life now -- it has an expiration date.

    I think they are a motorcycle club out of Winipeg.
